It is no secret to our readers that we have and are following the activities of payment processors in the high-risk area on our radar screen. Payment processors are the backbone of the cyber economy and are even more critical in the high-risk area. We have recently discovered several new domains through which high-risk merchants handle payment processes. These are likely to be connected to Payabl (previously PowerCash21). We would like to know more about it.
The New Domains
We have discovered three new domains through which high-risk merchants from the porn, gambling, and online trading sectors conduct payment services. All three domains run on the same IP address and are used since Feb 2023. These three domains are:
The Similarweb and Urlscan analysis shows that these three domains are attributable to or associated with the Cypriot high-risk payment processor Payabl (previously PowerCash21). High-risk merchants such as the porn sites xHamsterLive or StripChat were managed via other Payabl domains until February and are now processed via the new domains.
Please note: We do not claim that these domains are registered by Payabl or are used for non-legal purposes. Nevertheless, we would like to be able to monitor and track high-risk payment traffic.
We would like to know more about the owners and users of these new high-risk domains. If you have any information about them, please share it with us.
